Big RAM Beer & BBQ Festival
Date: Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th May 2022
Time: 10am - 5pm
Tickets: On sale now
For beer and BBQ loving fiends you are going to love this event. With over 40 craft beer and ciders available on the day and some good ol’ BBQ meats, this is a day the BBQ and beer lovers cannot miss! In addition to the array of beers and BBQ meats, there will also be BBQ competitions with the official Steak Cookoff and Australiasian BBQ Alliance Championship. Yes, these guys take their BBQ’ing seriously!
There will be other beer and BBQ displays, demonstrations and BBQ food stalls. Plus live music and a kids zone just to make sure everyone is entertained for the day.
*** Due to the continuing uncertainty around the lockdown in NSW, the decision has been made to reschedule the Festival until 2022. Michael Hope said, “While disappointed that we’ve had to again move my favourite festival, we need to play it safe. By next May we should all be vaccinated with unrestricted movement so we can provide a fun, safe event.”
Hunter Valley Cheese & Chocolate Festival
Date: Saturday 23 July 2022
Following feedback from many of the Cheese & Chocolate vendors, the decision has been made to postpone the Hunter Valley Cheese & Chocolate Festival at Hope Estate until 2022 – the new date has been set for Saturday, 23 July 2022.
Owner Michael Hope said, “this has been a tough decision to make given there’s such high demand for activities and events. A lot has changed with COVID, especially with a tasting event like Cheese & Chocolate, along with the changes that our vendors have had to make within their businesses. We realise we have to accommodate for these changes and would rather make this call now and concentrate on making 2022 an amazing experience”.
Hope Estate would like to thank all ticketholders and vendors for their support and understand this decision may come as a disappointment. Tickets will automatically be transferred to the new date. For questions or other information please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
